Report: No Charges Filed Against Mariotti

It appears Jay Mariotti has dodged a major bullet.

According to the Beverly Hills Courier, The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office won’t pursue a legal case against the 51-year-old sports personality for an alleged incident that occurred last month in Venice, Calif.

According to Shiara Davila-Morales of the District Attorney’s Office, the case was referred to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.

Mariotti was arrested on Aug. 21 on suspicion of felony domestic assault after he was allegedly involved in an argument with his girlfriend.

Since the arrest, Mariotti has been suspended by Aol Fanhouse and hasn’t appeared on ESPN’s Around The Horn.

Since no charges were filed, does this mean we will see the polarizing Mariotti back at Aol and on ESPN in the near future?
